I'll be getting a 3/260 with the Xylogics SMD disk controller and disk pack
on monday, and want to know what the current state of the driver is.  Is
anyone out there using it with NetBSD?  Does it work decently?  If so, I'll
blast SunOS off the drive and NetBSD it all the way on that box.  After all,
I get install media for Sunos too.  =)

On another note, is the tape support still "broken" as was rumored a few
months ago?  I'm getting a tape drive as well, and suspect that it may also
be as cranky as the SMD stuff.  <cheesy grin>
